We have memberships that are "fixed" from Jan 1 through Dec 31. This works fine except for that we want that if anyone creates or renews a membership in November or December, that their membership will be valid for this year and next year.

So if I create/renew my Membership in September 2019, I will be a member from then until December 2019.

But if I create/renew my Membership in November 2019, I will be a member from then until December 2020. Here I will get Nov/Dec of this year "for free" and then be a member for all of next year.

Presently, if I create/renew a Membership in November 2019, it ends December 2019.

  • Can you confirm that you mean this "Presently, if I renew my Membership in November 2019, it ends December 2019" or are you saying join/renew but do not have evidence of the problem existing when renewing? Karin's answer would be the right solution but if you are not seeing 1 year added to the End Date when someone renews then i think you have a separate problem – petednz - fuzion Dec 9 '19 at 2:04
  • Pls explain if you are using Rollover date, and if so how. – petednz - fuzion Dec 9 '19 at 18:52
  • KarinG's answer is correct -- now I see that. Thank you. – Hershel Dec 9 '19 at 19:11

You need to configure the rollover date in the Membership Configuration. Please see:

  • I see why this would fix the problem with New memberships, not sure I see why this solves the issue for Renewing members. – petednz - fuzion Dec 8 '19 at 21:00

    There is no problem with Renewing Memberships -> if you renew at any time during an existing year CiviCRM adds +1y – KarinG - Semper IT Dec 8 '19 at 22:40
  • Hi Karin. I didn't mean to imply there was a problem with your answer, more that the question implied that when they were renewing they were only getting a couple of months added "Presently, if I create/renew my Membership in November 2019, it ends December 2019" hence i wondered if there was more to their problem than 'rollover date' – petednz - fuzion Dec 9 '19 at 2:02
  • i added a comment to the Q to get clarification. i may just be misreading things – petednz - fuzion Dec 9 '19 at 2:04
  • Ah I see - I doubt there is a problem with renewals - unless perhapas they have configured it to be rolling when trying to do calendar year which is fixed? – KarinG - Semper IT Dec 9 '19 at 3:02
